Creative Quarterly: 100 Best Annual 2019

We want to bring special attention to those artists, designers and photographers who were our competition winners in 2019.

To start we selected a panel of judges from our featured artists, designers and photographers from past issues. The judges select the top 25 pieces in each of our four categories for special recognition. And each year we publish the best of the best in a hardcover book.

The 100 Best 2019 were chosen from CQ55, CQ56, CQ57, CQ58, see list of winners

Winners are in our 100 Best Annual 2019 which was produced in April 2020.
